Though just 70 kms from the red city of Marrakech, the Berber villages feel like a world apart.

This trek takes you to the northern edge of the Alhaouz Valley into the foothills of the lofty High Atlas mountains and is centred around visits to an area not normally visited by foreigners.
Outside of the cities, in and around their small villages, the Berbers have an agricultural lifestyle - keeping sheep and goats and growing crops e.g. mint, cereals, alfalfa, vegetables and fruit.
Departure by car from Marrakech around 9 in the morning for an exhilarating 2hour drive south up the Moulay Brahim Gorges, Asni weekly market every saturday and the high valleys to the Berber town of Imlil (1740m), known as Morocco’s ‘Little Chamonix’, set in the upper level foothills of the Western High Atlas mountains, a main trailhead with streams and paths branching out in all directions.
Here we shall leave our vehicle and meet your clients to take a welcome glass of mint tea in the village prior to setting out for some 4km excursion. towards the south to the Berber village of Aroumd (Aremd) (1843m), passing the hamlets of ait souka, Targa Imoula, up and down the stark slopes, the jagged Western High Atlas peaks of the Toubkal Massif before us - Jbels Aguelzim (3547m), Aksouâl (3847m) and the Adrar Adj (3122m) watching us all the way.
We shall stop at Aroumd to visit this rather singular village in the Assif Aďt Mizane Valley, built seemingly house upon house on a large moraine spur, overlooking ancient irrigated terraced fields of barley, corn and vegetables and always surrounded by almond and walnut trees. We thence carry on for another Half an Hour to get to our lunch wish will be served among a berber familly in the village prior to setting off back down the other side of the valley back to Imlil and the return trip to Marrakech.
